Street Art with a soundtrack

While exploring the backstreets and laneways looking for new street art, I have been finding some very good buskers. I had great background music while photographing a stunning new piece in Degraves Place off Degraves Street. The guitarist was very good. Further along I listened to a trio of musicians – The Collingwood Casanovas…

Classical Busking in Block Place

There is a pretty wide selection of buskers around Melbourne. From electrified bands to jugglers to statues. I often stop,  have a listen and occasionally buy one of their CDs. While walking through some of the laneways along Little Collins Street this week, I found this Cello busker in Block Place.

Lunchtime traders in Centre Place, Melbourne CBD – a fantastic spot for good food and a great price from a variety of small hole-in-the-wall shops – also has some interesting artwork and graffiti.

Buskers in Bourke St Mall, Melbourne CBD – these guys were amazingly good, Spanish style guitar with a modern flair. They were feeling the heat of the mid-day sun – but the show must go on…
